What Are You Reading: August 15, 2011: 08/15/11
I'm posting late this week because I've been on a trip to the mountains and out of reach of the internet. While I was up there, I hardly did any reading. I did manage to finish Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford and Tall Blondes by Lynn Sherr while on the trip. On our drive to and from, we've been listening to the Wayside School Collection a seven disc audiobook omnibus read by Louis Sachar. We will finish the book tomorrow on the last leg of our drive.
Up next is the audio book version of Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale. We will start it after the Louis Sachar book finishes. I suspect it will be what we listen to in the car over the next week. We have more audio book than we have time to drive home!
I also want to finish Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder because it's as awesome as everyone has said. Then I'm going to run to the library and checkout the sequel.
For review books, I want to finish Peter Nimble and then see what's new and waiting for me at NetGalley.
Finished Last Week:

I read the wayside school book when I was younger and it was one of my favorites at that age. A great read :)

My son introduced them to me. I've read the first book before but I like the audio version better. Louis Sachar does a great job reading his own work.

I love the Wayside School books! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Comment #4: Monday, August 15, 2011 at 23:24:25
If you haven't listened to the audio version, you should. They are fantastic.

I thought Yummy was very impressive and I also liked Inside Out (looking forward to the sequel)
Comment #6: Monday, August 15, 2011 at 23:26:29
I plan to borrow Outside In from the library as soon as I finish Inside Out.
Comment #7: Monday, August, 15, 2011 at 23:01:52
I've got Peter Nimble on my list to read this week as well and I cannot wait to dive into it! I really need to read Inside Out as well, I've only heard amazing things and now you are adding to the list of positives.
Have a fabulous reading week and glad to hear you had a great trip last week!

Put Inside Out near the top of your TBR pile. We had fun on our trip but it will be good to be home.
Comment #9: Monday, August, 15, 2011 at 23:23:46
Cool. I've always wanted to try Yotsuba:). And I need to read The Throne of Fire soon, although I didn't like The Red Pyramid as much as the Percy Jackson series.
Comment #10: Monday, August 15, 2011 at 23:29:32
When I was a teen I got into Egyptian mythology big time, so I'm biased towards the Kane Chronicles (ever so slightly) over the Percy Jackson series.

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I'm still sort of new to this and really appreciate seeing some friendly words from another blogger. I hope you enjoy Wayside School - I loved it when I was a kid.
Comment #12: Monday, August 15, 2011 at 23:31:33
I mostly got Wayside School for my kids to listen to in the car but I've been enjoying it too. Louis Sachar did an excellent job reading his own books. If you get a chance, give the collection a listen.
Comment #13: Monday, August, 15, 2011 at 23:51:49
I'd love to hear how the Wayside audio books are. I use the first one in my second grade classroom, but it might be fun to incorporate the audiobook if it's well done. What do you think?
Comment #14: Monday, August 15, 2011 at 23:32:35
Get the audio book. It has all three books and Louis Sachar does a fantastic job of bringing his characters to life.
Comment #15: Tuesday, August, 16, 2011 at 00:25:35
You did great! Hope this is a good week for you too. Enjoy!
Comment #16: Monday, August 15, 2011 at 23:33:02
Thanks. I don't know how it will turn out for reading. I have a lot of errands to run before the school year starts.
Comment #17: Tuesday, August, 16, 2011 at 00:46:50
Thanks for visiting NotJustReading again - it's lovely to see a familiar face. How did you find The Postmistress? I have it waiting for me on Mt TBR ...
Comment #18: Monday, August 15, 2011 at 23:34:45
Once I figured out how the doctor's piece of the story fit in with the other two plots, I liked the book.
Comment #19: Tuesday, August, 16, 2011 at 00:53:50
Great list of books! I wish I had accomplished as much reading as you this week. [: I just finished Inside Out a week ago, hope you are enjoying it.
Comment #20: Monday, August 15, 2011 at 23:37:05
I am enjoying Inside Out. I hope to finish it this week.
Comment #21: Tuesday, August, 16, 2011 at 01:59:00
Ohh - you're reading Inside Out! I hope you like it. Have a good week!
Comment #22: Monday, August 15, 2011 at 23:38:15
I do like it — very much!
Comment #23: Tuesday, August, 16, 2011 at 02:27:13
What an interesting group of books! I've been wanting to read The Postmistress.
Comment #24: Monday, August 15, 2011 at 23:40:22
The Postmistress was a slow starter for me. I really didn't get into it until the halfway point.
Comment #25: Tuesday, August, 16, 2011 at 04:05:05
That's great! I still haven't read Inside Out! Have fun :)
Comment #26: Saturday, August 20, 2011 at 17:12:40
Inside Out was very good!
Comment #27: Tuesday, August, 16, 2011 at 09:31:18
I'm curious about The Falling Raindrop. It sounds intriguing.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #28: Saturday, August 20, 2011 at 17:14:33
I think The Falling Raindrop will work fine for older children (ages 6-8). It was a little too scary for my preschool aged daughter.

I hope you enjoy Book of a Thousand Days, I really liked it when I read it a couple of years ago!
Comment #30: Saturday, August 20, 2011 at 17:23:03
We're about 70% done with Book of a Thousand Days. It's good, although it doesn't quite have our attention like Princess Academy did.

I did. Thanks.
Comment #37: Friday, August, 19, 2011 at 18:15:27
I haven't heard of Inside Out, but I'm going to have to check it out now. Hope you had a great trip to the mountains!
Comment #38: Saturday, August 20, 2011 at 17:42:21
Inside Out is a YA mystery in a science fiction setting. It's very good.
Comment #39: Tuesday, August, 23, 2011 at 21:56:30
You have to finish Inside Out! It's soooo great! I'm planning on reading Outside In in the next week or two.
Comment #40: Saturday, August 27, 2011 at 20:38:15
I did last week. It was wonderful.
